    Default Combinations of requests

    Does anybody know of successful grants that included two or more unrelated requests? We are considering PPE & training equipment for 2003.

    Default grant info

    Engle702,Were you successful for wildland equipment? If so were did you all purchase? We are in need of the backpack harness. We found them on the GSA site but we have to go through our State Fire Marshall's office. They told us they don't have the resource's to handle. Now were back to looking.
    If you all know of a source to purchase these items,let us know.

    Default packs

    Fireboat2:

    Don't know which state you are in?
    Our state DNR has a combined fire assistance grant program using
    Volunteer Fire Assistance Program monies along with other Federal agency monies, that is where we purchased our GSA packs, some hand tools, backback pumps, and web gear.The web gear is made at a state prison and for small fires is great. I would try to find out who handles the VFA monies in your state and go from there to make your purchase or at least find out how to make your order.

    I'm in KY. We know that the State Division of Forestery has do the purchase for us if we use GSA. We contacted them. They told us due to the lack of money, they couldn't help us. Seems like our playboy govenor is trying to direct everything away from him now that he has got caught by using the buget crunch as an excuse. We haven't gave up yet on using the GSA FOLKS.

    Default They would not help!!

    201:
    Since it appears that your local government is not going to be of assistance,confirm this with the head of the State Division of Forestery by mail and request a written response.. If the response is still the same then I would make sure all of my legislative representives know about this matter and if any fed money comes to the division let the Dept. of Agriculture (VFA monies)know about this matter.Documentation is the key word, if it's not in black and white and signed the old raft ain't going to float.

    You might try this link to GSA Advantage and email or call the contact and see if they can find a way to help.
